Gyorgy Babnigg

Bioinformatician/Molecular Biologist

Dr Gyorgy Babnigg earned his Ph.D. in Molecular Physiology and Pharmacology from the University of Chicago in 1997. He received his postdoctoral training at the University of Chicago and at the Argonne National Laboratory. Currently, he is a bioinformatician/molecular biologist at the Biosciences Division and a senior fellow at the University of Chicago Computation Institute.

Dr Babnigg is interested in how biological systems work at the cellular, sub-cellular, and molecular level. More specifically, he is interested in signaling networks in eukaryotic and microbial systems.

He is also interested in the structure-function relationship of proteins and protein-protein complexes using structural bioinformatics.

Dr Babnigg has built several databases systems, web and desktop applications. He has developed several Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) at the Argonne National Laboratory and managed Oracle databases for more than a decade.

He is also interested in developing computational resources that help to answer systems biology questions.

In addition, Dr. Babnigg is working on the miniaturization of biological workflows using microfluidics and lab automation.
